non-essential businesses in Israel, is closed for all but emergencies. I

can.

Our Preliminary Program is now listed in the website Program & Schedule in

outstanding activist and orator. He will bring a message to genealogists
reinforcing the value of their work researching individuals and families.

We are delighted to announce that *master genealogist Dick Eastman* will
be speaking at the closing Banquet. In the mid-1980s, at the dawn of the
World Wide Web, Eastman pioneered one of the first online Genealogy

Online Genealogy Newsletter" which has grown >from a circulation of 100 to
more than 60,000 genealogists.

I don't really have any more information, but the same rumor exists in my fa=

Bessarabia SIG Updates for the month of March, 2015 #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,
Shavua Tov!

Here is an update for the month of March 2015 for Bessarabia SIG.
See the details at the "What's New" section of our site.

Jewish Cemeteries. New additions:
- Cahul Jewish Cemetery. The Jewish Cemetery of Cahul (Kagul) in the south
of Republic of Moldova was photographed and indexed. Please see the
overview, maps, photos, and more at Final Comrat Report. 241 records were
sent to JOWBR with 219 photos, and also 112 photos of Unknown graves are now
on display at Bessarabia SIG / Cemetery section.

Just want to remind you if know about a Jewish Cemetery in Bessarabia which
was not yet indexed and photographed, you can initiate the new Cemetery
project, and you need to collect about 30% of total cost of that cemetery
project. We have started that way a number of cemetery projects and hope to
do more in the future.

Bessarabian Databases. New additions:
- Revision Lists to deliver to JewishGen in summer of 2015. 3704 records for
town of Ataki, 1848 were completed. Please see the whole list of sets
completed and in progress. Anyone who are interested in these sets, can
get for a donation of $100 to Bessarabia General fund, the whole set of
records for the town/year and also if interested a copy of an original
Revision list/page in Russian with your family. If interested send a
request to me at yefimk@verizon.net.

Genealogical Conferences:
Here is a first glimpse on
of Bessarabia SIG participation at 35th IAJGS International Conference on
Jewish Genealogy in Jerusalem, 6-10 July, 2015:

Wednesday, July 8, 11:15am - Bessarabia SIG Meeting, with presentation by
Dr. Dan Korn, President of World Federation of Bessarabian Jews
